Great Head, Great Customer Support.

As a camera operator, I searched for a while on certainly used heads, but I then came across the Proaim Orion Gear Head. I read about it, read a couple of reviews, and even showed it to other operator friends of mine to get their take on it. For the price, it seemed too good to be true, but I decided to go for it. When it arrived, I was really surprised by the weight and overall construction. This thing is heavy, which is great. The head is all-metal construction, with no major plastic parts. Every important piece is machined. The Wheels are very hefty and properly weighted in your hand as you pan and tilt. The pan and tilt axis run smooth and have two speeds to choose from. Overall, I am impressed with this Gear Head. For $2000, you can't beat this at all. For the price of this, you are getting far more than you deserve and with solid construction. Another major component to all this is their Customer Support, which is excellent. One of the reasons for the Five Star review is the outstanding Support I received from Proaim. I had a couple of issues come up with my head that I needed help with. Immediately they were responding to all emails, and even doing their own follow-ups when they had not heard from me yet. In this business, Customer Support is everything. When your job relies on your equipment working 100%, it is pertinent that when things go wrong it can be fixed, quickly. Overall, I am very happy with the Proaim Orion Gear Head. If you are looking to get your feet wet with Wheel Operating, you cannot go wrong with this at all. The construction is solid and the performance is smooth. You will be pleased."
